Abstract

This project aims to create automated analytical and visual tools that will aid researchers in studying phenomena occurring in Earth's thermosphere. The study of these phenomena, known collectively as space weather, is of growing importance due to the adverse impacts they have non manned space flight and communication systems. Using data recorded by the Fast Auroral SnapshoT satellite, binned statistical models of the average downward Poynting flux were created, assisting in the further study of space weather's effects on Earth.
